18 Times No Blemish, De Gea Secures Premier League Golden Glove Award

David de Gea has widely been considered the top goalkeeper in the Premier League for years, and now can claim an elusive bit of hardware to back it up.

Despite his long track record of success, De Gea had never taken home the Premier League Golden Glove award, which is handed out each season to the goalkeeper who keeps the most clean sheets on the campaign.

The Manchester United goalkeeper earned his 18th clean sheet of the season in a scoreless draw against West Ham United on Thursday, ensuring that he finishes on top of the 2017-18 Premier League charts for the category.

Manchester City’s Ederson, who currently sits in second place, holds 16 clean sheets having sat out his club’s 3-1 victory over Brighton on Wednesday and with one game remaining, cannot catch his counterpart on the red side of Manchester.

De Gea becomes the first Manchester United goalkeeper to win it since Van Der Sar in 2008-09, and the first Spain goalkeeper since Reina in 07-08.
